World trade has grown and continues to grow rapidly in recent decades. Much of it, is carried out by sea transportation, by the world's merchant fleet which is moving millions ofcargoes’tonesannually and traveling millions of tone-miles between continents. So far, the ship’s movement isachieved using conventional fuels, mainly marine gas oil with a relatively low sulfur content but a high carbon footprint. But what about the gaseous emissions of these fuels, what effects do they have on the environment, the development of the greenhouse effect and in the long term the ecological destruction of the planet? Can a fuel with reduced emissions, hazardous to the atmosphere and fully sustainable, be created from renewable energy sources? It is worth studying the use of environmentally friendly fuels that will minimize to zero environmentally dangerous emissions, and will contribute in every way to the reduction of the greenhouse effect. These fuelswill be produced from sustainable energy sources while at the same time restoring the ratio of atmospheric gases at their natural values. Such a case is the production of green hydrogen from renewable energy sources and through splitting water by electrolysis, using one of the three water’s splitting methods: the alkaline electrolysis (ALE), the proton exchange membrane electrolysis (PEMs) or the solid oxide electrolysis (SOE). The green hydrogen will be isolated as a gas and then converted into electricity through hydrogen fuel cells, in order to eventually power the ships' electric engines that will be used for propulsion or any other reason during sailing. Nowadays, the production of green hydrogen is at a disadvantage compared to other energy sources, due to its requirements in high electricity and temperature prices, as well as high-cost materials for its production through electrolysis plants in order to split water into its chemical elements, while at the same time the productive hydrogen’s purity and efficiency are reduced. This paper is a bibliographic review of the three methods of water’s electrolysis, by three different types of electrolytes, comparing data of cost performance per type of electrolyte
Motivation to Do Fraud and Factors that Influence It at Pt.Bkk Central Java Sragen Branch Original Research Article Country Indonesia
This study aims to analyze the factors that motivate someone to commit fraud at PT BKK Central JavaSragen Branch. The sample used in this study is the saturated sampling method, meaning that the entire population sampled is 70 people. The data analysis in this research is multiple linear regression analysis which is processed with IBM SPSS 23 program. The results of the analysis state that: (1) the variable of compliance with accounting rules has a significant effect on motivation to commit fraud; (2) the internal control system variable has no effect on the motivation to commit fraud; (3) the information asymmetry variable has no significant positive effect on the motivation to commit fraud; (4) individual morality variables have a significant effect on motivation to commit fraud; (5) the variable of unethical behavior has a significant positive effect on the motivation to commit fraud; (6) the compensation suitability variable has a significant effect on the motivation to commit fraud.
The Model Development Strategy to Maintenance of the 155 Mm-Caesar Canon in order To Keep on Operational Statement of the Field Artillery Force Original Research Article Country Greece
Rudi Setiawan || Djoko Andreas N || Sovian Aritonang
The procurement of the 155 mm-Caesar Cannon is a big leap in the regeneration of the Filed-Artillery Army's because in terms of quality, capability and reputation this cannon has a variety of advantages. The phenomenon that occurs in the Field-Artillery force that operate the 155 mm-Caesar cannonat this time is that the maintenance of the cannon is still not optimal due to several factors. Limited human capabilities in several stages of maintenance so that it requires technical guidance from Nexter manufacturer technicians who are still bound by the cooperation agreement for technology transfer and knowledge transfer. The strategy of developing a model of maintenance and maintenance of the 155 mm-Caesar Cannon so that the cannon could last a long time in its use. The research used is qualitative research, which is a type of research that aims to describe, describe, explain and analyze information from research problems through data collection by asking several questions according to research problems The results of the study found that model maintenance and maintenance of the155 mm-Caesar cannon currently by doing Prevent Maintenance before and after carrying out exercises and shooting.
Analysis of the Effect of Small Medium Micro Businesses, Gross Regional Domestic Products, and Regional Investments on Regional Original Revenue in District/City in Central Java Province, 2018 - 2020 Original Research Article Country Greece
This study aims to analyze the effect of micro, small and medium enterprises, gross regional domestic product, and regional investment on local revenue. The population in this study were all districts/cities in Central Java Province. The sampling method used in this study is Purposive Sampling which uses certain criteria as the basis for sampling.The data used in this study uses data time series which has a term from 2018 to 2020.The data analysis method uses multiple linear regression analysis with the help of software SPSS 21. The results show that gross regional domestic product has an effect on regional original income, while micro, small and medium enterprises and regional investment have no effect on regional original income.
Labor informality in Ecuador: Analyzing its determinants under a quantitative approach Original Research Article Country Ecuador
This research aims to establish the determinants of labor informality in Ecuador in the years 2009 and 2019, using cross-sectional microdata. For this purpose, we used data obtained from the National Survey of Employment, Unemployment and Underemployment (ENEMDU for its acronym in Spanish). We applied probit models to estimate the probability that an individual with specific characteristics belongs or does not belong to the informal sector, and the Oaxaca-Blinder (1973) methodology to corroborate the existence of a wage gap between the formal and informal sectors. With this, we found that migration, family size, age and sex are determinants of labor informality in Ecuador, where, the number of family members and age have a positive influence on the probability of being an informal worker, while being a migrant and being male have a negative influence. In addition, we find that there is a significant wage gap between the formal and informal sectors, which is mainly due to differences in human capital endowments. Finally, we recommend that policymakers implement a social program aimed at reducing vulnerability and mitigating the effects of labor informality.
